For two weeks, track for real on Sparkpeople. I bet you'll be in for a real surprise. Don't try to keep track in your head...we tend to underestimate or forget what we ate.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

You're already at a healthy weight for your height, so you likely don't really have anything more to lose. A muffin top is easily fixed by getting pants that fit better. :)

That said, it sounds like you might benefit from doing more strength training, if the results you're looking for are more body recomposition than weight loss. Are you doing any ST now?

what is your usual daily calorie intake? & how tall are u? It is a possibility that u aren't eating enough calories. Also, u should be eating your exercise calories back.....

Final weight goal of 140 pounds & maintain my fitness with excellent blood sugar management.

....i work out, i watch what i eat, it's not like i'm eating bags of chips, multiples of cookies....i eat very healthy!!! i haven't been tracking lately b/c i've been busy, but i've been keeping mental tracks, and it's still within my calorie ranges. i work out and burn at least 2,000 calories per week.....but yet i still keep growing out of my pants.....i have a muffin top, thick thighs.....i'm just confused. i don't feel like i can do much more, eat much less to have the results i'm looking for. anyone else stuck in a rut and have some solutions on how to get out? is this just my body changing?
